Weekend Workshop

It is on!  This weekend we are pulling out all of the bits and pieces we have been collecting on our thrifting adventures and putting them together to make one of a kind lighting masterpieces!  (hehe...well, that's the plan at least.)  Big Daddy has the know-how and I have the eye, so we're a pretty big mess great team.  Most of our cooperative creative ventures go a little like this...

Me:  Oooh, I have an idea!  Let's put these two pieces together.

Big Daddy:  I can make that work.  I'll just use this L bracket to connect them.

Me:  No way, that will look weird.

Big Daddy:  What did you want to use?

Me:  I don't know, something pretty, and industrial looking.

Big Daddy:  Maybe this piece?  Or that one?  You have lots of options, just let me know.  You know the L bracket would get the job done nicely.

Me:  Ugh, absolutely no L brackets!  I think I'm going to have to see it finished to decide.  It just depends on the overall feel of the finished piece.

And this is about the time when Big Daddy has to refill his drink.  (Isn't that funny?  Creating art makes him thirsty...hehe)  The truth is I'm a pretty lucky girl.  He puts up with me and all of my craziness and after his cup is full he always comes back to the table.  He's even been known to put pieces together just to let me see what they will look like and gladly disassembles and rebuilds when I change my mind.  Oh my gosh!  I'm so excited to see what we can come up with this weekend.  I'll keep you posted, for sure!


  1. Haha! What a funny post! I try to work well with my hubby, too. But sometimes we are just on two different pages when it comes to the way we think things should be done! But he is a sweety, too! After all, he even built my little red barn!

    1. Thanks Susie! We've been together so long we can giggle about our struggles, thankfully! And I do believe working together makes our finished products so much better (as long as there are no L brackets involved..hehe).

  2. How cool is that?! I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys create!

  3. So fun to make things together! We have different opinions sometimes, but the compromise is almost always the best choice!
    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

    1. I completely agree! (unless we're talking about L brackets...hehe)
